OUR LEARNING APPROACH

Our program sequences self-assessment, experiential classroom learning, reflection, discussion and action learning to accommodate diverse learning styles and provide each student with a variety of opportunities to discover her leadership identity, values and purpose while developing leadership skills and a budding reputation as an emerging leader.

 
 

Self-assessment, reflection & discussion DEVELOP:

            SELF-Knowledge

Student emerging leaders discover their leadership motives, values, purpose and ambitions. They nuture self-acceptance to value their strengths, work on their under-developed competencies, and own their successes. In this process, they begin to solidify their leadership identity and the foundations for ethical leadership. 

 

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING DEVELOPS:

            SELF-CONFIDENCE

Classroom activities put student emerging leaders into unfamiliar situations outside their comfort zones. As they are stretched they learn that they can rely on their strengths to lead in any situation. They develop the self-confidence to take prudent risks, and stand up for their beliefs and values. In the process they earn the trust of others and gain courage to lead in sensitive and challenging situations.

 

action LEARNING DEVELOPS:

            SELF-ESTEEM

By volunteering in leadership roles on social action projects  that serve their college or community, students discover the feeling of self-worth that comes from contributing to their world. In this process, emerging  leaders mature to realize that leadership is part of who they are rather than a title or role in an organization.

 
 
ANN’S FAR REACHING KNOWLEDGE OF LEADERSHIP, WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP IN PARTICULAR, COMBINED WITH HER GENUINE CARE AND CONCERN FOR OUR STUDENTS ARE CRITICAL COMPONENTS TO OUR PROGRAM’S SUCCESS. WE KNOW IT AND THE STUDENTS FEEL IT AS EVIDENCED BY THEIR TRIBUTES AT EACH YEAR’S PROGRAM GRADUATION.
